Evarts replied that Bis Friend had wandered greatly from the subject matter the argument. The question was if he Tilton made a qualifying statement Bis views what Hia wife meant when she said this and for that purpose the other Side bad introduced this paper which they offered in evidence. The other Side did not intend to a Bow whether the wife qualified Ber statement when she made it to him. The paper Tho counsel argued could be no evidence itself a it waa Only his Tilton a accusations against Bis wife. Evarts cited some cases in support Bis position. Judge Neilson held test the paper could not be read nor any portion it but if the counsel desired they might offer the specific Points in it for the purpose Basin their objections to its being Rul out.

The argument was Coo tinned at length but judge Neilson a Aid be had decided to Rule it out Beach taking an exception. Beach contended that be Only offered portions the statement to be read Aud asked to make an feb proof. Judge Neilson decided that the offer could be Given and Evarts excepted.
